Getting married in Doha and looking for wedding photography in Qatar?
Year-round sun and perfect weather for weddings, attractive features of the desert in a modern country… Doha appears as a well-recommended wedding destination. As its neighbors in the region, Qatar enjoys good centigrade temperatures ranging from 25 to 30 between October and May. Avoid June to August for outdoor ceremonies because of the high rate of humidity and temperatures reaching 40°C. When traveling Doha, Qatar authorities will provide you with a 30-days visa on arrival for both tourism and business. 33 countries can benefit from it (including USA, UK, France, Singapore, South Korea, Japan). Cost is approximately US$25. Buses and taxis are available to reach the City Center, which is close to Doha International Airport. As any Islamic countries in the region, dates of the Holy Month of Ramadan should be taken into consideration. Economic and administrative life can be slow within that period of time. December 18th and 31st, January 24th and May 1st are holidays in Qatar.
